This is my favorite time of year. Ragweed Season. Sneezing, eye itching, throat scratching, dripping. I feel like I am one big nose. A nasal irrigator twice a day brings a little relief. The irrigator removes trapped pollen in the nose and helps me fall asleep at night. I recommend the Nasaline Irrigator because it is what I wanted to design but they did it first (and better). Just be careful not to apply too much pressure and keep your mouth open. I don’t like the netti pot because if is much too messy and relies only on gravity for pressure. The best device is the Grosann Nasel Irrigator which about five times as pricy as the Nasaline and requires an electric outlet for power.

Be sure to cover your pillow with a towel during the day. Then remove the towel at night. This will remove some of the pollen which finds its way into your bedroom and which falls onto your pillow.

The bedroom air “purifier” is on 24/7 which also adds a little relief.

For total relief, schedule your vacation in upstate Vermont for this time of year. Antarctica is also starting to look good.
